I relinquish the turmoil in my heart, and will not be afraid
to go where the Universe leads me. Welcome 2014!
There comes a time when you seek to comprehend the true meaning of PEACE, and how you as an individual may find that peace, a peace which the world can neither give you nor take from you.
This is one way. Visualize the blazing Star, still, and yet full of life and light. Identify yourself with the Star, with the center of that Star. Allow your energies to go into the still center of that Star. Within that center you will find that all the anxieties of material life, all the struggles that you encounter in daily life, will fall away from you. In the heart of the Star is deep, eternal peace, and within this peace you are united with those whom you love.
On a daily basis give yourself time to enter this Star Temple, this calming scene. Go into it, away from the noise and turmoil and tumult, the fears and anxieties of the material plane. There, within the center of this Star, find divine, holy peace. Hear within your Soul the music of the heavenly spheres, the music of the Holy Word, the audible life stream which flows from the heart of the Creator.
Be still now, within your mind and body. Listen inwardly. Beneath all sound, beneath all thought, in the deep silence at the heart of creation, you will hear the harmony of God.
—Elizabeth Joyce — 12/02
When the power of LOVE replaces the love of power,
then we can begin our Spiritual path of inner Awakening,
The Sun has entered SAGITTARIUS
The sign of SAGITTARIUS is signified by the Archer or mythological Centaur, and gives you cosmic relief after the upsets and ordeals of the intense Scorpio energies. An optimistic and enthusiastic demeanor sustains your one-pointed efforts and sparks a renewed sense of daring and adventure in the outside world. While your path can include sports, long-distance journeys, and philosophical inquiries, steer clear of the temptation to be a dilettante—an amateur in many fields but master of none. As you strive towards truth and wisdom, it is easy to see the Universal picture but ignore practical details and then complain about the hard work. The fires of this sagacious sign can entice you with illusions of greatness or turn your gaze towards clear, long-range aspirations. It is up to you to see each goal with precision, reach it, and be willing to go on to the next one.
The Sun moves into this outgoing, enthusiastic fire sign for most of December, and it’s all about pushing beyond limits, borders and boundaries. World traveling Sagittarius is represented by the Archer, who shoots his arrows out into the world—usually several at the same time, and in all different directions. This is a time for exploration and expansion, with a potential for over-extension and over-indulgence, especially since it’s the Holiday Season.
Ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius is considered the most lucky sign in astrology, naturally attracting and spreading good fortune and easily bouncing back from any of life’s misfortunes. The American holiday Thanksgiving, falls during the Sagittarius season, reminding us that by noticing what we’re grateful for, we generate more abundance and blessings. Remembering that Gratitude often brings Abundance.
2014 will be quite an interesting year for you Sags. You will be kept on an even keel with just enough changes for you to go outside the little box we all create for ourselves. Saturn reminds you that 2014 is a year for towing the line, while Jupiter shouts that’s it’s time to learn, grow, and prosper. If you are willing to grab the initiative, abundance is here for the taking. In mid-2014 you will finally lay the foundation for achieving some important personal goals. Although you may be misled about some true feelings of family and friends, you have the ability to overcome any problems that should arise.
2014 promises to be a forward looking year and you can make it so by grabbing the tiller and take charge of steering the ship!

If I could see the world
Through your tiny eyes,
Maybe I would know
How to scrutinize!.
Every detail carries weight,
And true to its purpose,
Has its perfect place,
To stop the wandering and
Three ring circus!
Mouse says, “I will touch everything with my whiskers in order to know it.” Paradoxically, this is both a great power and a great weakness. It is good medicine to see up close and to pay attention to detail. It is bad medicine to chew everything into little pieces.
Mouse has many predatory enemies, including birds, snakes, and cats. Mouse is food for many, so it has a highly developed sense of danger at every turn. So-called civilization is a highly complex set of components which calls for more and more highly organized skills and scrutiny every year. Mouse is a powerful medicine to have in these times. Things that may appear insignificant to others take on enormous importance to Mouse.
Mouse people will frustrate and anger many others at times because they appear to be nit-pickers. Mouse people will spot the lint on someone’s skirt, even if it matches in color. They will try to convince you that the simplest task is fraught with difficulty. They are fixated on methodology. They sort, categorize, and file away information for further use. They may seem like they are hoarding, but this is the farthest thing from Mouse’s mind. They are merely putting everything in order so they can explore things more carefully at a later date.
The Shaman Chief tells us that without Mouse, there would be no system or organization of knowledge. Mouse knowledge ended the Renaissance Man and awakened the age of specialization. Mouse knew from the very beginning that “there is always more to learn.” One can always delve deeper, and deeper, and deeper.
December, 2013, has brought to us the medicine of Mouse. You may be fearful of life but very well organized, with a compartment for everything. You should try to see a larger picture than the one that is staring you in the face. Develop a largeness of Spirit. Try to become aware of the winds of change, the rain, the sun, and the great dance of life. Realize that even though you may live in Santa Barbara, there is also New York. There is a moon, a solar system, a galaxy, and an infinite Universe. Jump high, little friend, and you may see the Sacred Mountain.
December and the time of Sagittarius is telling you to scrutinize. Look at yourself and others carefully. Maybe that big hunk of cheese is sitting on a spring awaiting a deadly trap! Perhaps the cat is in the pantry waiting just for you. Maybe someone to whom you have delegated authority, such as a doctor, lawyer, or the plumber, is not doing the job faithfully. This message from Mouse is to see exactly what is in front of your eyes, and then, act accordingly.

RUNE of the month
Water-That which conducts
The urge toward unconsciousness, toward the past and immersion in the flow of feeling, toward the Mother, the womb’s security – all of this is inherent within the Laguz rune. Unseen powers are active here. The creative and fertile powers of nature. The attributes of Laguz are water, fluidity, the ebb and flow of tides and emotions, careers and relationships. It fulfills our need to immerse ourselves in the experience of living without having to evaluate or understand. It speaks to the desire for comfort and the satisfaction of emotional needs, the lunar side of our nature. For while the Sun strives for differentiation, the Moon draws us toward unity and merging.
This Rune often signifies a time for cleansing, for revaluing, reorganizing, realigning. A Rune of knowing and psychic power, it may call you to study spiritual matters in readiness for deep self-transformation. For a man, success now lies in contacting his intuitive knowing; for a woman, in attuning to her own rhythms. A Rune of the self relating rightly to the Higher-Self, it signifies what the alchemists called the conjunction, or sacred marriage. In fairy tales, it is the end where the hero and heroine live happily ever after.
Don’t be afraid to make the leap or take the chance.
